9:00pm
for days. the storm surge has been higher than ever in the history of this region and higher than they were predicting even a short few hours ago. the great storm of 2012 is coming ashore, and we'll have you covered all night. hannity is next in a special live two-hour greta, and we're live all night on america's choice for news and information. and this is a fox news alert. sandy has made landfall along the southern new jersey coast. the storm is now a monster nor'easter, but the storm is still very powerful, very dangerous. now, the national hurricane center is reporting tonight that the storm has sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. now tonight more than 1.5 million people are without power all along the east coast and at this moment lower manhattan is in the dark. rick reichmuth is in our fox news extreme weather center tonight tracking the storm's path. rick? >> we're saying the storm has been downgraded t from a hurrice
9:01pm
to a post tropical storm. it's been a messaging nightmare. if you hear downgraded, don't believe it. we've got a monster nor'easter on our hands, incredible impacts happening now. the winds are extreme out of the east here across areas of long island sound. it's been pushing water all day long here in towards new york city, and that's why we now have significant flooding. i believe we have live pictures or pictures out of new york right now into lower manhattan, and water is going into the battery tunnel right now that connects lower manhattan into brooklyn, and it has now been inundated with water. getting all kinds of reports of water in the east village, in the west village, and it's slowly moving up further in towards the area. i want to show you this wind picture because we're about to see the worst of our situation. right now we have high tide, right there is the battery. that's the very lower end tip of manhattan right there. the winds now have switched to the southeast. that means we'll see the worst of the storm surge pushing in here right at high tide. we've already got water levels
9:02pm
two feet higher than we've ever seen. that goes back to a hurricane that was back in 1822 or 1821, so almost 200 years, that kind of a storm. it's not just right here. this is the immediate impact to the area that's under dire stress right now, all kinds of reports of major damage. the city of hoe bow ken in new jersey -- hoboken is being flooded to the south and the jersey shore took a beating today. we're talking about coastal events right now because that's the impact immediately, but i've got to tell you the next two days we've got widespread flooding across new england back towards ohio. flooding concerns everywhere interior, also high winds that are going to cause power outages, already over three million people without power tonight. we'll see more as the storm spreads inbound land t inland tt lakes, 20 to 25 foot waves on the great lakes. blizzard conditions by the time this is dn done. with he might see three or four feet of snow across the higher
9:03pm
elevations. everybody getting in on this across the eastern part of the country. a dire situation across the coast of the northeast. >> thank you very much. the state of new jersey took a direct hit when post tropical storm sandy came ashore. ririck leventhal is in point pleasant, new jersey with the latest conditions. rick? >> reporter: sean, conditions got progressively worse throughout the day beginning early today. the wind is just buffetting us on the third floor balcony. the ocean has met us. it's like ocean avenue is underwater. >>underwater. it's difficult to see. no lights on in pleasant beach. you might be able to see the foam an the white caps. if you look at washington avenue, the water is coming in. >> that's rick leventhal. obviously we lost him in point pleasant, new jersey. he's in the mill of it all. joining us for more of the storm and its monster impact, it's
9:04pm
hurricane joe. nice to b to see you. >> nice to be here. >> you said earlier on the northeast was due for this. we're right now at this hour it's the worst that it's been. tell us where we are. >> we're at the height of the storm over the next several hours. i disagree with what the hurricane center has done as far as the meterrology. this is a warm core tropical system, and you're about to see it on the south jersey shore where the southerly band comes in. i just talked to my father in summer's point. he had howling north winds gusting over hurricane force. he was calm with a pressure of 27.90 and now the wind is roaring back out of the south. that's what hurricanes do. in other words, there's a calm part, so this is moving inland now, and what has to happen over the next three to six hours is the wind continues to shift into the southeast and then eventually the south. some of the folks from atlantic city southward had mainly a north wind, so the storm surge has not been as bad as where rick is up at point pleasant, but the problem you have from
9:05pm
atlantic city towards roh rehoeh beach. >> the impact is going up to new england. >> yeah. >> as we look at the cone of this storm, what does it mean from baltimore, for philly, for people a little more inland? they're going to have high winds as well. >> that's right. philadelphia's wind will go calm and very light, then switch strong to the south for several hours and weaken during the day. baltimore's wind out of the northwest will go to the west and then the southwest and then to the south and calm down. we may have problems with a strong southerly wind up chesapeake bay trying to push water back up into there. i was watching what's going on in delaware bay because the northwest winds began to develop because the storm went to the north of them. it's blowing water out of delaware bay, so those folks in there are probably in better shape down the road. you've gotta understand.
9:06pm
this thing is spinning very quickly but it's weakening on its way in. >> for those that live in new york that may not understand, there are parts of new york actually below sea level. we're talking about battery tunnel. they're now below water. >> right. >> that means this is going to hit the subways. >> yeah. >> this is the biggest surge we've ever seen in new york city. >> that's exactly right. >> what does that mean for power outages, what does it mean for the subway system? >> the next several hours things are going to stay bad because the wind is coming directly in off the ocean, and because the wind is coming directly off the ocean, we're going to be getting a surge trying to stay up. i want to again point something out very, very different. usually like remember irene, goes by, the wind goes to the west even though it's strong to the west. it blows everything out. in this particular case, the wind keeps coming in from the southeast. >> yeah. all right. so the next thing i want to ask in terms of what -- for the people that didn't leave and heed the warning of governor cuomo in new york, governor
9:07pm
kristchris kristi in new jersey, there a chance their homes could be below water. >> yeah. they could be below water for quite a while. what will happen is the tide tries to go out, and the wind will keep trying to stop the tietide from going out. it's a y dangerous situation. one of the things i got real upset with and i talked to you yesterday for quite a while about the whole situation is not putting the hurricane warning in effect because people think oh, it's a big nor'easter coming. big deal. we've gone through big nor'easters before. when the hurricane warning is put in effect because you have a hurricane coming, it's a very different story. my suggestion is once you've named that storm, you leave the name and the class fakings is important. >> why is this so important? for some people in the end this may end up being an insurance issue. >> it's important to me because the foundational history of what we have to compare storms to. when we're naming storms in the middle of nowhere, you know, they might be storms that we
9:08pm
didn't see years ago. we say look at that, we have 20 storms. we're under global warning when in 1933 or 1935 we may have had the same thing, you know, that's one thing. but all these storms, 38, the hurricane drove 13 feet of water into providence, was that a post tropical system when it hit? we have all this stuff. it's almost as if it's meant to cause confusion. what i'm trying to do is say let's get the confusion out of there. keep the darn name on it until it's dead. >> let me ask you for people living on the coastal area seeing floods coming in tonight. right now it just hit land in new jersey. we're right in the middle of all of this. there's still going to be storm surges, flooding coming. >> right. >> it's also high tide now. >> so how long does it take to recede? >> it's going to recede several or a couple feet over the next three to six hours. the water portion or the wind pushing in will continue to try to stop the water from going out. that's the big difference between this storm and these other storms where they go by, the wind turns to the west and
9:09pm
you get blow out tides behind it. this time the water tries to stay in. the wind starts weakening late tonight and tomorrow but it's coming off the ocean, still retarding the water flowing back. let me say something. first of all, this storm, i want to say this, was long overdue. i talked to you about this before. my father used to call it the shortcut storm. he said he was confident he would see it before his days were numberrered and he's finally seeing it. that's the first thing. the second thing is get used to it along the east coast. maybe not this kind of track but we're in a perilous track because the atlantic is warm, the pacific is cold. it's the '50s all over again. it has nothing to do with global warming, has everything to do with nature. we'll go back to where we were in the '60s and '70s. >> so there's patterns to all of this. >> my goodness. do you realize we had 10 major hurricanes run the seaboard between '54 and 1960. six of them in '54 and '55, six hurricane hits from carolina northward. the old bac b achman turner son,
9:10pm
you ain't seen nothing yet. if anything, i was too quick on the gun several years ago when i said we would see this time of thing. >> it drives you nuts, hollywood stars, bette midler tweeted global warming cost big bucks. bill clinton said electricking romney is -- electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. when you see co2 continue to go up and the global temperature goes up, levels off, and you can associate it with the natural cyclical pattern of the oceans and you look at the big picture, and also a lot of these people are just weather voyeurs. what if you've been studying since the day you were born? some of them just study it now. >> i was conceived during hurricane hazel. >> tmi. >> what is that? >> too much info. >> i'm just saying. your son is sitting here, too.
9:11pm
>> he knows the story. >> all right. thanks, hurricane joe. we'll continue to track sandy's path and the destruction she leaves behind. you're looking at a live shot. this is lower manhattan in new york city. it is in the dark and at the moment it's underwater. we'll bring you the very latest developments plus tonight we have a race in seven days. more than 60 million people are likely to feel the impact of this storm. both president obama and mitt romney were forced to cancel campaign events. will this impact what happens with a week to go before americans take to the polls? we'll check in with dick morris and be joined by ann coulter and the father of the navy seal hero from benz benghazi, tyrone wood. or that you had to print from your desk. at least, nobody said it to us. introducing the business smart

9:14pm
9:15pm
and this is a fox news alert. we are monitoring the monster storm sandy as it made landfall in new jersey just a short time ago. at this hour one and a half million people are without power all along the east coast and according to the mta, there is water now entering lower manhattan's tunnels and subway stations and we'll continue to follow the very latest developments as they head into the fox newschannel. first, in addition to the widespread damage that sandy is causing all along the east coast, its impact is being felt on the campaign trail as well. today both president obama and governor mitt romney announced that they've cancelled campaign rallies that were scheduled for both tonight and tomorrow and each of the candidates spent time today talking about the significant weather event.
9:16pm
>> obviously everybody is aware at this point that this is going to be a big and powerful storm, and all across the eastern seaboard i think everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. >> speaking today with the national weather service and with folks at fema as they're preparing for the landfall of a very, very dangerous hurricane. it's going to affect a lot of families. it already has, and the damage will probably be significant, and of course, a lot of people will be out of power for a long time, and so hopefully your thoughts and prayers will join with mine and people across the country as you think about those folks that are in harm's way. >> so is monster storm sandy the october surprise of 2012? joining me now to talk about the impact of the storm and much more as it turns to politics, the author of here come the black hospitals, former clinton advisor dick morris. by the way, governor romney, dick, as i read, gave his campaign bus for relief efforts for the people that are going to be impacted by the storm and
9:17pm
bill clinton raced out there to politicize this by saying electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. i guess its fitting considering this has been the nastiest campaign run by president civility and company that we've ever seen. >> yeah. incredible. well, i think there will be three impacts from the storm politically, one which will help obama. any time there's an emergency like a blizzard or a flood or a tsunami or something, the president gets to play rescuer in chief, something bush failed to do with hurricane katrina. i'll bat obama dons his rain coat and his galoshes and shows up helping some wisconsin town sand bag against the lakes or something, and i think you'll see a lot of that. i think that that could prove very effective. that's a very good strategy that many, many governors and some presidents, even, have used. if romney is smart, he'll match
9:18pm
him sand bag for sand bag and be out there himself doing it, so that it's a break-even situation. the worst would be for romney to criticize obama and point out how political it is. what he should do is just join in the effort. >> well, apparently -- apparently he's already done that. real quick. >> the other two things are that i think it's going to depress turnout in the northeast, and that, of course, is obama's base, and people who are suffering from hardship anyway might find it especially difficult to vote, and that could have an impact. the other is that throughout the country, depths tr democrats try voting. gallup said republicans are actually in the lead in early voting at the moment, but the point is democrats worry that they'll get their base out. they line up at the nursing home or line up the union members and march them in and do early voting so they can control it. the republicans don't need to do that and probably can't do it anyway, and therefore, losing early voting will not be a
9:19pm
significant event for the republicans. >> i've argued that this campaign by the president is so different than the person that he showed himself to be in 2008. i mean, you talk about the smallest of things, bayonets, big bird, a dunce cap on romney, accusing him of murder, dirty air and aware. a pro obama super pac just came out. watch this bad. how bad and how low this sunk and how beneath the dignity of the office of the presidency this is. >> mitis. >> watch this. the week before they came, they took the american flag down that flew outside the plant and the week after they left, they put it back up like we're supposed to be ashame we're americans. >> outsourcing downs, taking down the flag.
9:20pm
>> economic traitor? that's the title of the ad. >> that's not going to wear well in the middle of a national disaster when the country wants to come together. by the way, sean. i'm delighted that you're having tyrone wood's father on later in your show. you might mention to him, i don't know if he knows, but dick morris.com we so far have raised $350,000 for his grandson and his daughter-in-law who ty woods left, and we've now basically assured this child of a financial future, and i'm just thrilled that the american people have done it and want to thank fox news for doing it. i first announced it on your show last week. >> we appreciate it, dick. he's going to be here with his whole family. they're going to be in studio just coming up in a short bit here. thank for being with us. also coming up tonight, the east coast is getting pummeled at this hour by hurricane sandy. we continue to track this monster storm and assess the damage all throughout the special hour of hannity, and
9:21pm
then first it was the ad that compared losing your virginity to voting for obama. now the president's supporters are upping the ante and exploiting children. this ad will anger you. we'll play it tonight on hannity hannity. ann coulter straight ahead. this happy couple used capital one venture miles for their "destination wedding." double miles you can "actually" use. but with those single mile travel cards... [ bridesmaid ] blacked out... but i'm a bridesmaid. oh! "x" marks the spot she'll never sit.

but i bought a dress! a toast... ...to the capital one venture card. fly any airline, any flight, anytime. double miles you can actually use. what a coincidence? what's in your wallet? [ all screaming ] watch the elbows ladies.

>> sean: and this is a fox news alert. we continue to monitor the monster storm sandy as it slams the east coast, leaving a large section of manhattan in the dark at this hour, and underwater. we're going to bring you the very latest on the storm throughout this hour. meanwhile, back on the campaign trail, another new week, another desperate move from the left. the latest pro obama ad features children singing about the horrors that will grip america if, in fact, governor romney wins this election. take a look at this pathetic ad. ♪ imagine an america. >
9:26pm
>> sean: joining me with reaction to that nonsense, author of the "new york times" best seller "mugged", ann coulter is back. sick people just die? polar bears, of course, we haven't killed them all but not for lack of trying. i'm sorry. big bird is sacked, the earth is cracked, and the atmosphere is frying. first of all, what parent would let their child sing that pop began da. >> we need to call child abuse authorities. they're going to make great college democrats. they look exactly like the ones that come to my speeches.
9:27pm
although i'm promoting mugged. it appeals to the simple minded, the slogans. >> it's brain washing. >> notice how this is how liberals always behave. they always want to have sex, clinton, gore, obama, of course, and they write this in places like the "new york times". they're liberal and their fantasizing about having sex with their candidate. our candidate is always the enemy. this is how obama works. >> sean: if you like have an obamagasm. >> at the same time their opponents must be described as at tea baggers, racist, hitlers, and the world must be rid of the scourage. >> sean: the latest ad, the first time. my first time, you want a guy that loves you, that cares about you, and we'll give you free health care and birth control.
9:28pm
i mean, they're sending this out. >> i know. >> sean: this is like a big push in the final days of the campaign. >> we have to give it up. the democrats have a lock on the stupid voters. we're never going to get them. they got them. they have feeble minded women. they peacial hav apparently havd kids who have been told the republicans are killing the polar bears. >bears. >> sean: find a park that's open and take a breath of poison air? >> one of their main clients did the got milk ad is? the united states government. we also have cron crony capitaln the ad. they're supporting obama, so liberal democrats will pay them to create ads. i mean, the weird thing about the got milk ad you may have noticed is no one particular firm is being advertised. that's because the government forces milk farmers to pay into this fund. bain capital never did anything this corrupt. >> sean: let me ask you this. ohio romney has pulled into a 2-point lead. michigan is dead even. they're sending bill clinton to
9:29pm
minnesota, joe biden to pennsylvania. obviously the obama campaign is on defense. do you really think pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, wisconsin, and ohio, possibly romney votes? >> i'm not sure which one. you have had to check with someone like miki michael baronn that. i'm worried that the romney campaign will steal. i don't care where they're going to send biden. i'm going to wisconsin. five speeches this weeks. i'd look at illinois. democrats are massively unpopular in illinois because of quinn, because of raw rahm he e. there could be a surprise state like pennsylvania or illinois. >> sean: good to see you, ann coulter. when we come back, we continue to track the monster storm
9:30pm
sandy. over a million and a half people are out of power and new york is being flooded. lower manhattan and the new york governor's office is reporting storm-related deaths. we have a live report coming up next, and then later, this storm is interrupting the political world, but we continue to focus on the benghazi coverup. tonight in studio, the father and family of one of the fallen navy hero sales is going to join me here in studio, and they want questions answered. what did obama know, and when did he know it ... next. are we there yet?

9:35pm
course, new jersey which was in its direct path. they've been hit very, very hard in these coastal areas, especially atlantic city heading on down to cape may in new jersey and now moving north. the storm is moving much faster than was earlier projected, now moving close to 20 miles per hour and in some cities it's going to hit -- word i is it wil move through pennsylvania and make a direct right turn and move towards upper new york and into places like albany and buffalo and syracuse and rochester. we're going to continue to track the very latest developments with this storm throughout the evening, but first we have new information tonight on the white house's coverup of the benghazi terrorist attack. fox news has now learned that 48 hours after that fatal assault, the national counterterrorism center and representatives from the fbi briefed members on capitol hill and told them there was evidence that al-qaeda or an al-qaeda affiliated group was somehow involved. well, now here's where things get sticky. according to sources, the very
9:36pm
next day cia director david petraeus during a capitol hill briefing reportedly said the attack was spontaneous and equated it to a flash mob, so here's the question. who in the obama administration asked general petraeus to go out and change the story? my next guest is demanding, rightly so, to know the answer. his son, ty woods, is one of the four americans killed in the benghazi attack. his son was a navy seal. joining us is charles woods with his children, jeremiah, faith, and hope. thank you all for being here. i am so sorry your son turned out to be one of the -- this is one of the most heroic stories i've ever heard in my life. he was told -- he was a mile away at the cia, a mile away from the consulate. he heard the cries for help, was told to stand down twice, and he went anyway. >> you know. it does not surprise me at all that my son would disobey direct
9:37pm
orders from the white house to stand down and not to help. he's trained as a navy seal, never to leave anybody behind, so it does not surprise me one bit that he would jeopardize his military career as well as his life to help save the lives of other americans. >> sean: you shared with me an e-mail you got from one of the people your son saved. >> okay. this was very touching. i received an e-mail from someone who said your son sacrifice saved my life, and i was very much touched by that. he touched many lives. he saved many lives. he was a hero long before he went to libya. >> sean: what is so frustrating to me is the president two weeks after is still saying that this is related to a movie trailer, and it wasn't true. he's still saying it had to do with the movie trailer, spontaneous. this was a terror attack. he was asked two weeks later,
9:38pm
and he's still blaming the movie. we found out the ambassador requested security, it was denied, and the they reduced it. then we find out that they knew from day one, they could see this in real-time. what are we to think? why would the president not tell you and your family here and the country the truth? >> why wouldn't they tell me the truth? i don't know what their motivation is, but hillary a couple days later when the bodies were flown in, she had the nerve to lie to me. i knew she wasn't telling me the truth. she's smarter than i am. she had to know the story she gave me about the film was not the triewlt, either, and she said they were going to put them in jail, she told you. >> well, the film maker. someone should be put in jail as a result of this or many people should, but i don't think it's a film maker we're talking about. >> sean: you blame the president. you blame the white house. >> let's say i don't want to point any fingers, but obviously people in the white house were watching this happen real-time.
9:39pm
someone in the white house or many people in the white house watched the events unfolding and knew that if they gave the order to stand down that my son would die. they watched my son die. as far as i'm concerned, there are people in the white house whoever it was that was in that room watching that video of my son dying, their cries for help, their order don't help them at all, let them die, whoever that might be, it might be numerous people, you have the blood of my son, you have the blood of an american hero on your hands. i don't know who you are, but one of these days the truth will come out. i still forgive you, but you need to stand up. >> while we're on this, i would like to say while we're obviously connected with ty by no means only him, there are many other americans there and ambassador stephens, so just --
9:40pm
>> sean: jeremiah, your dad told me you looked um up to your brother. >> he was obviously a good deal older than me, but growing up he was definitely someone i idolized very much. he was an embodiment of a hero from day one. he'll obviously end up going down as being known for his last act of heroism, but it really started from an earlier age than when he was 41 and in libya. >> sean: let me ask all of you here. you all have expressed a strong christian faith, and can you forgive? i don't know if i would be able to. i was telling you this in the green room, and i'm not kidding. i would be so angry. we'll start with you, girls. you're 12 and you're 15. >> yes. > >> sean: it's a lot to ask when you lose somebody that close to you. >> well, i mean, god is in control of everything. you just have to trust him every day. >> sean: you miss your brother. >> yes, we do.
9:41pm
as a christian, we should act how jesus would want us to act, and obviously we need to -- like jesus, he was pretty good at forgiving. >> sean: you also want answers. you want to know the truth. >> we do, yeah. >> sean: the main thing he was told to stand down. why would you say to stand down when he wanted to help and he risked his life, and why if these cries were being heard not only by your son and by others that did risk their lives, why didn't -- why were they denied help? your son died seven hours after he went in. >> you know, i can't imagine anyone with any heart that would watch a battle rage for seven hours knowing that heroes were there that were going to be slaughtered if you didn't have help sent in. we know the c-130s could have been sent there in less than an hour, jets could have been scrambled in minutes from many
9:42pm
different parts of the globe. the order was don't help them, let them die. you know, i'm sorry. people in the military are honorable, and when they make a vow, they're honorable enough to leave up to it. part of that vow is to defend american lives on american soil from all enemies, foreign and domestic. this compound was american soil about international law. i'm speaking as an attorney. by international law, a diplomatic compound is american soil, no matter where it's located, so we had 30 american citizens on american soil. this is no different than if it happened in l.a. or any other city. it would not take seven hours normally to scramble the jets to send a 130 if this was on american soil in california or new york or any other place, but i don't know why. why didn't they do it?
9:43pm
>> sean: i want the tapes released. the tapes that caused your son to defy orders to stand down, i want -- they have those tapes. they have drone tapes. they can release them. >> okay. we're not political. i did not vote for either candidate last time. to be political. >> sean: i'm not trying to be political. >> but to be political would be dishonoring to my son's life and death. however, i'm here to honor my son. part of the process of honoring is to forgive, but part of the other process is to truth and to make sure that justice is pursued. i hope that it is because justice has to be paid for the benefit of everyone. >> sean: thank you for being here. you're all in our thoughts and prayers. >> i would like to share one thing. i'm surrounded by heroes. we have a hero. before the show sean mentioned he donates his time to go out
9:44pm
and get scholarships for children whose parents have died in action. i said ty, jr., his son, jut grawftd from higgraduated from . just a second. just a second. he lifted up his phone and said one word, done. jeremiah just called ty, jr. and told him guess what, you can go to college now, you got a scholarship, and ty said sorry, ty, jr. said sorry, you're a week too late. i just signed up for the navy for four years. i'm walking in my father's steps. ty, he had empty shoes that need to be filled. his son, ty, jr., is filling those shoes. i want ty to be a role model for others that they will walk in his shoes, that other americans will become american heroes, too. thank you.
9:45pm
>> one more thing i could add along with that. before ty left for his last tour, one of the last people to talk to him, he asked ty about some, you know, why are you going, and he had served 20 years in the field. he had already been involved to point where he had a pension, and he was financially doing well. he had a wife, a newborn child, and then he asked him why are you going? why are you doing something so risky right now with what you have, and what he said was american needs people to serve, and if i don't go, who will? i don't know. it's good to see the support for people who are filling their shoes because they're definitely big ones. >> sean: your son and your family are in our prayers. thanks for being with us. coming up, parts of manhattan continue to be in darkness tonight. we'll have the very latest on the storm and the latest straight ahead.

>> sean: and this is a fox news alert. con edison in new york is reporting that large portions of mid town manhattan are now without power. over 250,000 customers are in the dark. new york governor cuomo's office is reporting that there are storm-related deaths tonight. meanwhile as election day fast approaches, both campaigns have flooded the air waves in key battleground states with television ads and a last ditch effort to sway undecided voters. joining me to help all sort it out, let me put out ohio rasmussen. we have a two-point romney lead. this is now a state that is surging in romney's direction. then, of course, we've got the latest gallup poll that shows 49-47, and it's 51-48. frank, what do you make of this? >> if those polls are accurate, mitt romney's the next president. the question that you have to
9:51pm
ask if that is the most pro romney of all the surveys out there. i wonder about ohio. we know that there's a romney intensity advantage. people want to vote for him more than obama voters want to vote for him, but why is it that more obama voters are voting in these -- in this early voting? >> sean: at a much lower rate. >> gallup tonight released a report from their latest survey that shows the people who actually voted already nationally, more people voted for romney than voted for obama. >> sean: he's talking about ohio. ohio numbers are slower. >> they're moving. they're cannibalizing in part their election day vote in order to move to other voters. >> sean: that's the point. >> ohio, $50 million or more is being spent on tv. every possible obama voter is going to be dragged to the polls, and a lot of people don't even know they're registered will be brought out to vote in ohio. it could be worth two points or
9:52pm
more. >> sean: karl rove is saying what you're saying. people that have voted in the last -- >> they'll bring them to get them out of the way. >> sean: what's also happening is there's a surge of new republican voters and early republican voting. i mean, it's now at a much higher level. the inintensity, of course, is with governor romney. >> i would tell people to be watching wisconsin even more than ohio. paul ryan is very popular there. he's known state wide. his numbers are fantastic, and that's a state that has already survived a recall. there's a good republican organization on the ground because of the scott walker vote. the man did even better in the recall. >> sean: if romney loses ohio, he's got to get colorado, new hampshire, or ohio. >> look. they already had a presidential turnout almost. it was two million people, and the republicans won by six. they have a big ground operation. the other states moving, the ones where they've not been poisoned by money, minnesota, pennsylvania, michigan are also moving because of the national polls.
9:53pm
right now this is moving romney, but if they don't -- you know, this could still move back. the bottom line, this storm gives obama the potential to demonstrate something that has been lacking, leadership. his numbers are dropping. whichever state you look at, however you slice it, he's dropping, his approval is going down. republican identification is going up. obama needs something, whether it be an october surprise or leadership. >> sean: to win. >> to win, yes. >> last week we said the most important number was approval. his approval went down in gallup to 47 and in rasmussen to 47. something i think is seeping in, and i wish the republicans used more of it because it's an outage. >> sean: this father, unbelievable. are you going to dial some ads when we great ads? we'll look at that and continue to monitor that and, of course, we're tracking sandy as it has now hit shore in new jersey and a lot of mid town manhattan has lost power and is underwater.
9:54pm
we'll have the very latest and we're awaiting a press conference from new york city mayor michael block berg as soon as he comes -- bloomberg as soon as he comes to the podium, we'll bring it to you on the fox newschannel. boom! here it comes! bring it back! bring it home! [ male announcer ] when you combine creamy velveeta with zesty rotel tomatoes and green chilies, you get a bowl of queso that makes even this get-together better. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh! [ male announcer ] taste it and describe the indescribable. could've had a v8.

>> a quarter of a million customers are without power. it's basically from river to
9:58pm
river, 35th street, 34th street on south, and in fact, there are a few parts of very lower manhattan that still have power. con ed expects many outages to last at least throughout the morning and possibly longer. they have to pump out some stations and then fix their equipment. the one thick that we had not counted on, new york university hospital back up power. in spite of them being sure and ensuring us it's been tested stopped working and we're working with them to help move people out. we are seeing a large number of fires caused by downed wires and electrical problems relating to outages. if you see a wire on the ground, please don't touch it. just stay away. we have two serious problems, however, that new yorkers can help us alleviate and i'm asking you to do your part here and help us get through this. right now the 9-1-1 system is receiving something like 10,000 calls per half an hour. typical volume is only a
9:59pm
thousand calls per half an hour. much of this is being driven by non-emergency calls like people calling to report downed trees or to report non-emergency flooding. please, please, please do not call 9-1-1 if it is not a life threatening emergency. you are putting other people's lives at risk by occupying the lines. if you have a non-emergency, call 311 or better yet, text 311 at 311692 or go to nyc.gov. the second problem is a lost cars are -- lot of cars are getting stuck on the roads and blocking emergency vehicles from getting to people in need. we need to keep the roads clear. do not drive. let me repeat that. please do not drive. we have now sent a message to all taxi and livery drivers to get off the roads immediately. as i said
